TJ’s Seafood Shack – Oviedo

I stumbled upon this local joint one afternoon driving by on Red Bug Lake Dr / Mitchell Hammock in Oviedo. Tucked in a plaza next to LA Fitness, TJ’s Seafood Shack is a small place that could definitely be a great spot for locals to come and relax. The decor is reminiscent of a beachside shack, furbished with quirky sayings and different antique signs emphasizing relaxation, a welcome reprise from the busy life of Central Floridians.

The Bucket-Lights are a nice touch lol

The menu is mostly seafood items and everything here is under $10.00 with their most expensive item being the crabcakes at $9.95.

TJ’s Seafood Shack actually won the award for Best Taste for Taste of Oviedo 2009 and it’s not hard to see why. I order the Shrimp Po Boy, a sandwich made with breaded fried shrimp in a loaf. The bread was light and soft, chewy to the bite and the shrimp was pretty good. I liked how they have home made Roumalade sauce and also the option to have fresh fruit rather than fries.

The Strawberries!

The sauces!!!

Overall it was pretty enjoyable! I’d definitely come back to see their other offerings.
